Many new patients wonder how laser hair removal works and if it's even effective. The laser is essentially a form of light energy that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. As the laser is passed over the treatment area it damages the targeted follicles, ultimately stopping their ability to grow hair. Since pigment is needed to absorb the energy, laser hair removal is most effective on brown or black hair.
We perform a variety of treatments at our Cosmetic Centers in Katy and Houston including laser hair removal. Although just about any area of the body can be treated, the more popular areas are the upper lip, bikini line, and underarms. We have several state-of-the-art machines for laser hair removal. In our Houston location we use the Duet and in Katy we use the Vectus. Both the Duet and the Vectus deliver outstanding results and are faster and more comfortable than our previous devices. The length of each treatment session depends on the size of the areas being treated, but most are over before you even realize it. As a result, most of our patients do not require any anesthetic cream. However, to reduce any discomfort and help you relax, you have the option to have anesthetic cream applied before treatment to the targeted areas.
To further enhance your comfort, we also offer pain management with Zimmer Coolers. These devices have revolutionized a range of laser treatments by delivering continuously chilled air to the skin, making procedures that use laser and thermal energy much more comfortable. We use Zimmer's
Cryo 5 and Cryo 6 models depending on each patient's unique needs.
After your laser hair removal treatment, the hair falls out over the next 1 to 2 weeks. Because hair grows in phases, it takes an average of 6 to 8 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, to achieve complete results.
You can also "1-stop shop" – combining laser hair removal with any other cosmetic treatment, such as one of our relaxing SPA services or BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments when you visit Suzanne Bruce and Associates.
